I just had a fun afternoon with friends at a class called Wine and Canvas, http://www.wineandcanvas.com. About 18 of us were instructed on how to paint a copy of Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night”. The company provided the materials, instruction and we drank wine, ate good food and listened (and sang) to music. I have painted with oils before, but this was my first experience with acrylics. It was great, hope to do again.

Wednesday we are flying to Houston to begin our trip which includes a 7 day cruise with Jim’s sister JoAnn, and her husband John, as well as a few friends. We’ll be on the ship over Thanksgiving and Jim’s 70th BD. Wow!
Other big news is that we finally bought a new van, a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan (what else). We went through the Credit Union and AutoNation and it was a good experience.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We are thankful every day for so many things, including health, love and friendship.
